Without discussing it with you directly, your credit card will only be charged in the following situation: (a) cancellation less than 48 business hours in advance of your appointment, (b) no show for appointment, (c) additional services rendered agreed upon by you (i.e, phone sessions, report writing, etc.), and (d) lack of payment for appointments.
